Barristers uses misunderstanding to his advantage


A horsehair wig and robes aren’t the most suitable attire during a heatwave. So it’s understandable that barristers, on rare occasions, may let their professionalism slip as they get a little hot under the collar.

Thanks go to Gerard McDermott QC, who over the weekend spotted this courtroom-gem in The Times.
